The Los Alamitos Race Course has canceled races for the third time in the first few days of its three-week Thoroughbred Meet due to fallout from the deaths of 30 horses at Santa Anita during its recently completed meet.

"Due to a shortage of entries, there'll be no daytime Thoroughbred racing Thursday," track officials said in a tweet released Saturday. "Racing resumes on Friday."

Los Alamitos cancelled its first Thursday and Friday races before its season started June 29, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The track's Summer Thoroughbred Meet runs through next Sunday, July 14.

A shortage of entries also caused Santa Anita to run only three days a week the last half of its troubled season and Del Mar racetrack in San Diego County has races scheduled for only Wednesday through Sunday, the Times said.
